The male was injured in the spring and because its wing could not be repaired it was euthanized unfortunately. They had been using an old industrial smokestack platform as a nest site. The dark area behind the bird is inside the smokestack.

Taken from about 100 meters away while in my car, hence the poor quality. It seems to know I'm there and is not happy.

The sunny weather continues in BC, which made this possible once it was high enough in the sky in Richmond, BC, Canada. One Canada's most formidable aerial hunters up close and personal like I've never seen before.
